Holy smokes! Can you believe it? It’s our 50th PODCAST!!! This week we were joined by Colbert Report writer and podcast virgin ROB DUBBIN! He tells us about the terrain generator he invented to get out of writing a book and his favorite twitter bots.
THEN! REVENGE expert Jim VanBlaricumSebastian Peemuffin tells us all about how to get revenge on people, and at what temperature to serve up that particular dish!
Plus! Top of the Lake! Bob the Railway Dog! AND: IS THIS GOODBYE?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!!??!
Lisa Hanawalt, who you may remember from such white hot Lucky Peach hits as The Secret Lives of Chefs, has a handful of copies of her new zine left. It is called Save a Horse, Ride a Hanawalt and the image above is stolen from it and it costs $8 and you should buy it now before it’s too late and you have to ice down a bottle of wine and cry yourself to sleep (again).
Thank you Lucky Peach, I love you!
I have reprinted a limited number of these Save a Horse, Ride a Hanawalt minicomics! I won’t make more after this batch runs out, tough itchy titties!
Update: I’m shutting down my shop for the year, but you can get these at comics shops like Secret Headquarters (LA), Floating World (Portland), Chapel Hill Comics, and Desert Island (Brooklyn).
LISA HANAWALT will be at the Brooklyn Book Festival. INTERNET I KNOW YOU LOVE IT.
It is the successor to last year’s THE SEX PANEL except also this time it is about architecture and national memory and punny-ness. The slideshow that Anne Ishii put together is wicked, get ready for some stylish mind-blowing. Check it out:
BROOKLYN HISTORICAL SOCIETY AUDITORIUM
Mundane/Profane/Profound: What We Draw About When We Draw Comics. Cartoonists talk about the weird, wonderful, and sometimes shocking choices they make in their craft. Ben Katchor (Hand-Drying in America) offers urban fables where daily details lead to socio/political revelations. Lisa Hanawalt's sexy/snarky one-pagers in My Dirty Dumb Eyes hinge on the vulnerability of showing it all. Miriam Katin's thoughtful, witty memoir Letting it Go explores profound loss and forgiveness in the context of teeth whitening and stomach troubles. Ulli Lust's punk travelogue This is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life lays bare body and soul. Moderated by Anne Ishii, translator,The Passion of Gengoroh Tagame. Featuring screen projection. Special thanks to Goethe-Institut New York.
I will also be signing at D+Q booths 141 + 142 from 12-1 pm with Anders Nilsen and 3-4pm with Miriam Katin. Come say hi!
HELLO BABIES. This is a VERY special episode indeed. Lisa and Emily finally watch DUMB & DUMBER together, in fact, they are still coming down from the high during this very recording. On this episode, the very funny comedian and writer TED TRAVELSTEAD (@trumpetcake) is a true scholar on the subject of pick-up artists and hip lingo! And street magician Nick Maritato Drew McClanahan wows us with his logic-defying act!
Also: NEWS FLASH: Men behave hornily in the Summertime! We play two rousing rounds of Fuck/Marry/Kill! And we get kind of riled up by Cryptozoology.
